Sarah McQuaid announces extensive November UK tour

Spain-born, US-raised and UK-based singer-songwriter Sarah McQuaid is heading out on the road again for 12 solid weeks of touring, with 35 shows in the USA and 22 in the UK, starting on September 6th and winding up back in her adopted home county of Cornwall on November 30th.

Produced by guitar legend Michael Chapman, Sarah’s fifth solo album ‘If We Dig Any Deeper It Could Get Dangerous’ was hailed by Dutch music magazine Heaven as “an early contender for folk album of 2018,” the UK’s fRoots said it was “a collection to savour” and the USA’s PopMatters called it “a gateway into a true innovator’s soul.”

“I’m really looking forward to getting out on the road again,” says McQuaid: “After the intensity of last year’s album-release touring, I made the decision not to do any long tours in the first half of this year, although I did manage to get over to Ireland to perform at the Belfast Nashville Songwriters Festival, which was fantastic, and I’ve just come back from playing at a folk festival in Belgium.

“But it’s all been short little trips out, so it’ll be great to be finally getting my teeth into a proper tour. The US tour is coast-to-coast — we start off in North Carolina, then head northwest to Colorado via St Louis and on to Idaho and Oregon, then down into California, then back east again through Wyoming, Iowa, Illinois and Indiana to South Carolina and Virginia, then north up the east coast, finishing with a week of New Englandgigs – so we’ll see a massive range of different terrains and landscapes. I can’t wait!”
